Dear Condo Owners,
I hope this email finds you well. Given the recent economic developments, I wanted to provide you with a brief overview of the current economic climate and how it might impact your decision to sell or rent out your condo.
10-Year Treasury Yields: Recently, there's been a significant rise in the 10-year Treasury yield, reaching levels we haven't seen since 2007. This rate is a key indicator that affects various loan types, including mortgages.
Mortgage Rates: Due to the rise in the 10-year Treasury yield, 30-year mortgage rates have approached 8%, a rate not seen since 2000. This increase might discourage potential buyers as their borrowing costs go up.
Housing Market Impact: Higher mortgage rates could have mixed effects:
Economic Growth & Challenges: While the U.S. economy showed a robust 4.5% growth rate in the third quarter, projections suggest a slowdown in the coming quarters. This slowdown could influence potential buyers' confidence.
What Does This Mean for You?
Selling: If you're considering selling, keep in mind that while mortgage rates are rising, the limited housing supply might still fetch you a good price. However, the pool of potential buyers might shrink as borrowing becomes more expensive.
Renting: If you're leaning towards renting out your condo, it could be a prudent move. With increasing mortgage rates, some individuals might opt to rent instead of buy, potentially boosting rental demand.
As always, it's essential to consult with a real estate professional to get a detailed analysis tailored to your specific situation.
